Henry James' The Golden Bowl

We will discuss The Golden Bowl, one of the masterpieces of James' late period, when he attempts to explore the intricacies of human consciousness through an increasingly complex writing style. While his brother, William, famously derided James' late style, particularly that of The Golden Bowl, it will be interesting to discuss how successful Henry is at capturing in fiction the "stream of consciousness," which William described in his writing on psychology.

Here is the tentative schedule:

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
